Wonky Stars – Top Done!

And just like that, the top is done!  I really love it – it turned out great!

Untitled

The initial project plan was to do the reverse of Vanessa Christenson’s Hopscotch, like she did here.  I posted about adding extra rows to this quilt to make it large enough to be used for a few years and to use up as much of the fabric as I could.  I don’t need leftovers sitting in my stash until who knows when!  Also like Vanessa’s, I’m strongly considering quilting this myself with straight lines.  I REALLY love how hers turned out so I think I’ll give it a go.

The top is 58.5×49.5″.

It appears that I REALLY liked her Hopscotch pattern. I purchased the pdf download version from her site last week and when I tried to move the file to a different location on my laptop, I got the message that said, ‘hey lady…you already have a file with that same name…want to replace?’  So, yeah…I bought it twice!  Whoops!  I have no idea when the first time I bought it was.

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

    This is fabulous! I love the idea of a few white wonky stars adorning a patchwork of novelty prints. This may prove to be inspiration for my younger son’s bed quilt!

    So beautiful! Even a simple quilting will make it the most wanted quilt for a boy!
